Italian Ceramic Zafiro Amphora Jug
larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify
This stunning hand painted maiolica Deruta amphora jug is delightfully decorated in the 'Zafiro' design with a lovely design of fruit including strawberry, grapes, cherries and peaches, all on a black background with a contrasting yellow handle and edging.

The 'amphora' jug shape dates back to very early Roman times when the term 'amphora' was first used.  Many of these jugs were huge, but this interpretation of this lovely design stands 200mm tall.

This lovely jug, hand painted in Deruta (a small town in the Italian province of Umbria, where majolica ceramics have been made since the 15th centruey) makes a lovely ornament, but of course could be used as it was in ancient times if you desired as well.

The inscription on the base shows this detail and includes 'MOD' which stands for 'Majolica of Deruta', the name of the manufacturer, and 'DIP A MANO', which is Italian for 'Painted by hand'.

Scroll through the images above and click on the image to see a larger picture with the full detail.
